I'm going to the location.

Thx for the great tip!!!!

Just so I am on the same page with the help I have received, I should have the package ready to go (booked), Room, Park Tickets, Dining. Then when the dates are released I have them just apply the FD Discount to the package rather than re-create the whole thing from scratch after cancelling "just the room"? That sounds like what I was looking to hear.

You don't have to have dining added on, just room and tickets will work.

You are free to ask whatever you want to as often as you want to.

If I use my Disney visa to book the entire package i get 6 months free financing correct? If this is true wouldn't it be a good idea to do that because then I get the reward dollars too?

They told me on the phone tht I could manage everything through the mail. By sending my cash in money order. She said it would take longer that way but can be done. She also put my zip code in her comp and brought up the closest chase branch to me.

And we get to pick from a few really cute Disney cards!!! ( cuz that's what really counts! Haha)

Visa Debit Card

I went to the bank on Sat, and got one, I did not want the credit card as it could end up getting me in a lot of trouble. I went to the branch and opened an account, they set it up so that I can transfer funds from my regular checking account. If you call they will tell you that you can not do it over the phone, the chase that was near me was out of state but only 30 miles away. This way I will only spend what is in the account. Going in December hoping that we have free dining.

I would feel better if I had a branch close by. There are a lot of fees involved. One of the fees being $12 a month. There were options. Like the $500 deposit every month. With no fees. But I would have to utilize this as my main bank account. Like I said if it was closer. Oh well
